Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius

I'd like to bring to your attention 5-day retreats run by the Benedictine Fathers of Abbaye St Joseph in Flavigny in France. Before you stop reading, no, you don't have to go to France. Each year the fathers lead these retreats in Great Britain (Franciscan Retreat Centre in Pantasaph, Flintshire), Ireland (Ards Capuchin Friary in Creeslough, Co Donegal) and in Australia (Hartzer Park Retreat Centre in Bowral, NSW). Additionally they offer English language retreats in St Joseph's Abbey in Flavigny. The cost is minimal and no-one shall be prevented from making a retreat for financial reasons. I, personally, have made 2 retreats at Flavigny where each day begins with the celebration of Holy Mass in the EF. The next retreat in the UK will be given from Monday 12th to Saturday 17th August. The Pantasaph Centre is set in the beautiful countryside of N Wales & just a few miles from Holywell & St Winefride's Shrine. The retreats are open to men only over the age of 17 years. In the first instance contact the abbey at: Abbaye St Joseph de Clairval English Spiritual Exercises 21150 Flavigny-sur-Ozerain France E-mail: Even if you cannot attend the fathers will be happy to send you a monthly newsletter, featuring the life of a saint, free of charge on receipt of your address details. They also produce a wide range of beautiful spiritual artefacts & books.
